Welcome!  We are the research group of Dr. Adam Fontecchio, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University. Our research is primarily in the area of nanophotonics with a focus on the nanoscale interaction of light with matter. Dr. Fontecchio is also the Co-Director of the ExCITe Center, where we work on combining engineering and science with art and music to make innovative new projects.  Our primary interests include:

  • Liquid crystal/polymer composites for gratings, lenses and HOEs
  • Liquid crystal interactions with surfaces and in confined nanospaces
  • Alternative energy generation through   novel photon interactions
  • Ink-jet printed conducting materials for RF and photonic applications
  • Creation and development of smart textiles technologies including soft interconnects, sensors, and wireless implementations

  We welcome you to explore our website and to contact us with any questions!
